Can't say much about the festival, but the town is one of my favorite in the North East. Great skiiing in the winter and fantastic hiking/fishing/canoeing/kayaking in the summer. Beautiful place.

Thanks SDH, also for the Kickin' Derek Trucks hand-off!

Heres another cool Sahib Teri Bandi:

Not enough steep & deep enough for Cliff in VT, but he was just wondering if there were going to be any fun "poncho-chicks" at the festival...

Broke my leg there when I was about 11. Good times.

I haven't been to the Sunshine Daydream Festival.

Never heard that 71 PittsPA show. It's the show of the day to carry me through work. Thanks Cliff!

My wife lived in Rutland (Killington) for a while. Fun place to visit, but a strange town. I might have spent too much time there if you know what I mean.

Bear Mountain at Killington was outrageous. I still have back problems from the moguls. I love the powder out west a lot more!

No names attached to the Grateful Dead cover bands that the promo claims will play, sounds like a crap shoot. If the skiing conditions are good, it might be worth the trip, but I doubt I'd travel specifically for the event.
